Tires and Wheels with out Rubbing or Spacers

I was looking at American Racing Bajas 15x8 with a 5.25 backspacing. I want to eventually get 285 BFG's (33). I have a 2000 Tacoma Prerunner and I was hoping to not have any rubbing even at full turn. Do you think this will work?

I think you're gonna need less backspacing. The stock wheels on my 02 trd are 16x7 and I think they don't have that much backspacing. Some 15" wheels will not clear the brake caliper. I think 4" of backspacing would be a better choice if you do not want spacers. Check these out.

They are made to fit Toyotas specifically.

How do you like your coil spacers? I was thinking about getting something like that to preserve my ride and comfort, but I heard they compress over time. Any pros to getting those vs. the front shock spacer

As far as lift options go, they are very economical. They do stiffen the ride a bit. I'm not expecting these to compress over time as they are made out of aluminum.http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/s...00/ppuser/2566
If when you say shock spacer, you mean the spacers that mount above the strut and install without a coil spring compressor, then I have heard of them causing problems over time, but I don't have any specifics to back that up.

Oh nevermind I was thinking those were the lengthened coil lift that doesnt use a spacer at the top. That is exactly what I want to get. Toytec seems like a good brand and you get all that you need in one kit. Nice looking rig.

Thanks. Toytec is a popular one here. It is very economical and you can install it yourself with basic tools and mechanical knowledge of the suspension. There's something appealing about a company that designs only stuff for Toyotas, too.
